The vocabulary here is quite misleading, indeed.

Following a network discovery task, everything found will be imported 
directly in your inventory if:
  1) the device category (computer, printer, networking device) is 
  2) an import rule matches
Everything else will be left in "unknown hardware" category, which 
should rather be called "unknown category", or even better "staging 
area", as you may have identified device there, if the second condition 
(import rule) doesn't match...

Anyway, in order to run a network inventory task against any device, it 
must first be imported into your inventory. Everything in "unknown 
hardware" category is not considered as belonging to your inventory for
